I’m still like that. I only focus what I’m interested in. I give it my EVERYTHING when I do. But if it bores me? MAYBE I’ll go through the motions but I make it a speed game them. As quickly and efficiently as possible, the least i can posibly get away with in order to give them the least they need.
The whole show your work bs in math: i hated it ’cause I did it in my head. I had to teach my nephew (now 10) the same tricks I used last year.
You do it twice. Once your way and get the answer. Then, the LEAST you can get away with to do it their way and pass.
